Katie and I call our kitchen a One Butt Kitchen because that's about all it has room for. We cannot open the refrigerator and the dishwasher at the same time. In fact, in order to open the dishwasher we have to move the trashcan. It is wee. But even though it is the clown car of kitchens it does have some magic. Namely, two ovens. Yep. Two people can barely fit in there, but two ovens? Bingo!
Both ovens came in handy on Saturday when we had to bake for both Easter and a dessert auction our ward was having that night to raise money for youth camps. We were up to our eyeballs in baked goods. Between the two of us we made a german chocolate cake, a strawberry cream cake, a chocolate peanut butter pie, a chocolate bundt cake (which was named Too Much Chocolate Cake - as if) and banana nut bread.
The banana bread wasn't for anything in particular - we just had rotting bananas and also, this is not our first dessert auction. I have found that when we spend all day baking only to come home without anything I get a little punchy. The banana bread was preemptive.
Later that night, to celebrate the success of the auction, we decorated eggs:
And then rolled around in all the money that was brought in.
Not true - Katie just counted it. And we marvelled once again at how generous and awesome our ward is.
